"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"As with much of the Nutshell series, this book is aimed at the competent programmer who needs a quick reference, not at the beginner. As a teacher of C programming, I had been looking for a reference work which covered the C99 version of the language standard, and did so in a readable format free of omissions and errors. "C in a Nutshell" did not disappoint, and the utility of the standard library reference was a welcome surprise." - Graham Lee, news@UK, June 2006 "This excellent book should have been written years ago." - Paul Hudson, Linux Format, November 2006 - 8/10

If there's one thing I would change with this book it is that I would like there is a hardcover version; because once you develop obsessive-compulsive disorder of taking this book everywhere with you it would surely help if it was of maximal physical durability.
This book doesn't teach you how to program in C, it assumes you are already very fluent in the language.
If you aren't, this book will be a waste of time and you will not be able to understand it.
Prinz and Crawford strike the right balance, in my view, between "succinct" and "illustrative". I have seen other books that overview C that I would describe as "terse but obscure": not this one.
I like the book, but wish it was updated for C11, at least.
But it gives you a lot deeper of a look into C programming...and covers the C99 standard.....something many other C books do not do.
This is a great book.....you can read the whole things....many great illustrations and sample code. Also a very good reference book.
